THE FULL MOON
Letters to Cupid
I’ve tried and tried, but I just
can’t find a solution to my prob-
lerti. Please help me. As you
know I go with a ci^te little boy
named Joe, but when I date, my
“Ma” just won’t get out of the
living room. I’ve pleaded and
I’ve begged, but it just doesn’t do
any good. Also Sylvia calls me
every night at 10:00 and I can’t
make her stop talking so I can get
back to Joe. Please tell me what
to do, ’cause I’m really desperate.
After reading your pitiful let
ter, I sympathize with you entire
ly. You really do have a prob
lem. There are only two ways out
of this that I can see. First is to
bribe Mr. Grigg to give your
Mother extra work to do at school
on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
nights. Then just take a pair of
scissors and cut the telephone
wires and stop “Sy’s” talking (if
that’s possible). If that doesn’t
work, just make “Dr. John” buy
Joe a Cadillac convertible.
What’s wrong with me? I’m
considered fairly handsome and I
have good looking 1932 A-model
Ford. I take my girl to the Wed
nesday night shows, I buy her the
best peirfume and jewelry from
Roses’s; but she still doesn’t love
me and insists on going out with
these “cheap” guys. Please tell
me what to do—I’m really worried
You really have a problem. I
believe you can solve it by taking
her to the double feature Satur
day shows. You can also buy a
newer car. Any girl would love to
ride in a 1933 Ford, especially if
you cut the top off and have a
beautiful convertible. Try buying
a few pieces of jewelry from
Starpes’; anybody can afford that.
Ihope this helps you, because I
really understand your problem.
